Bug#578407: live-initramfs: does not load bnx2x firmware

Subject: live-initramfs: does not load bnx2x firmware
Package: live-initramfs
Version: 1.156.1+1.157.2-1
Severity: normal


I'm trying do Debian Lenny netboot for using with FAI.
We use some HP Blades BL460c G6 with Broadcom NetXtreme II 10Gb, which
need a firmware.

I've added "bnx2x" to /etc/initramfs-tools/modules, and installed
firmware-bnx2x package. 
During update-initramfs process, I can see adding of the module and
But when booting, I get:

bnx2x 0000:02:00.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 28 (level, low) -> IRQ 28
bnx2x: part number 412F4E-0-0-0
bnx2x: Loading bnx2x-e1h-
bnx2x 0000:02:00.0: firmware: requesting bnx2x-e1h-
bnx2x: Can't load firmware file bnx2x-e1h-
bnx2x: Error loading firmware
bnx2x 0000:02:00.0: PCI INT A disabled
bnx2x: probe of 0000:02:00.0 failed with error -2

I've found that the udev script firmware.agent that should enable
firmware loading is never launched when modprobing bnx2x.

My workaround is to move the script: scripts/init-premount/udev to
scripts/init-top/udev. Which makes udev launched before modprobing

I'm using lenny, with backports.
